COLUMBIA -- Thursday's contest was hard-fought, but the Missouri Women's Basketball team falls to 12-5 on the season (1-2 SEC) after its loss at Tennessee. The Lady Vols topped the Tigers in a physical battle in Knoxville. Eye led Missouri with 18 points overall, and Junior Bri Kulas contributed nine points in the contest as well.

Eye made three of her seven three-point attempts in the first half, and Bri Kulas put up nine points as well. The Tigers grabbed 22 rebounds in the half, using their defensive efforts to slow down the Lady Vols.
